Poured clear, gold with a large, frothy, white head. The resulting, sticky lacings lasted throughout the session.
The nose is sweet malt, floral hops and spicy phenols with pepper and coriander.
Sweet malt, candied sugar, funky yeast, apple and grape esters, along with coriander and pepper phenols render this a complex, flavorful brew. The alcohol is also very well masked.
Possessing a medium body with fizzy, creamy carbonation, this brew has a delightful mouthfeel.
For me, this is the quintessential tripel. It tastes great on draft or in the bottle and ages quite well. While it isn't the best tripel that I've tried, it is certainly the most consistent and serves as a wonderful benchmark.

Pours a fairly clear golden with a lingering frothy ivory head. Notes of green apple, lots of peach, coriander, and clove dominate. The flavor is more subtle, with sharp green apple,a touch of pear, and citrus becoming bready mid palate and finishing peppery and spicy. Great beer, with a well appointed dry character that keeps it refreshing. Bitterness is a touch more than I'd prefer.
Serving type: on-tap
